It’s Day 2 of my Ranking the Marvel Trailers from Worst to Best series and I’m so excited to share with you the top ten trailers. Enjoy!
(If you missed it the first part to this series is linked here.)
10. Iron Man 2
Whoa, this is a good trailer. It shows plenty of exciting money shots without giving the viewer any idea of what the movie is about. It’s kind of amazing. And Whiplash actually presents a legitimate threat in this trailer. I like it.
9. Captain America: Civil War
I remember seeing this trailer and being a tad bit horrified. Seeing these heroes that had grown to be friends fighting each other is kind of mortifying. I’m glad the movie ended up being even better than this trailer because that shows how good it is.

There have been twenty movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far but at one time all we knew of these films were their exciting or somewhat disappointing trailers. Trailers tell you everything about a movie’s quality and that’s why I’m ranking them. But because there are, well, twenty trailers to rank I’m breaking it up into a two-day series. Enjoy!
20. The Incredible Hulk
Like The Incredible Hulk this is clearly the worst trailer of them all. Maybe I’m being a little biased because I know the movie isn’t that good but still, it’s kind of lame. It could’ve been a good movie but unfortunately it isn’t.
19. Captain America: The First Avenger
Captain America: The First Avenger is a boring origin story, pure and simple. The story is well told but the movie is poorly made. In the hands of the Russo Brothers it might have been a completely different film but in those days Marvel hadn’t entirely gotten their footing yet. It definitely is #19 in my opinion.

When The Hunger Games train arrived a few years ago I happened to miss it. I didn’t see a single film or read one of the books but today I finally got a chance to see The Hunger Games and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. I was excited. I knew the movies and books had become somewhat a cultural phenomenon and I wanted to finally know what the hype was all about.
I turned The Hunger Games on, kind of expecting it to be a disappointing movie experience and immediately I was riveted. There was something about the movie that drew me in and got me invested in these characters that I didn’t know but immediately wanted to know.
Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) was the type of heroine that I love to read in YA novels. She was fierce, unafraid to speak her mind, and unsurprisingly tough and efficient. I immediately liked her.
Peeta was a great character that I grew to like over the course of the movie. He was sweet and kind and I actually started to care about him.
By the time The Hunger Games arrived I was just as afraid as Katniss at the very thought of the brutal competition. Like I said before, the movie was riveting. It made me cry, it made me gasp, but most importantly it made me happy. I felt relieved to finally see The Hunger Games and to learn that it was actually good.
I’ll give the film a 92 out of a 100 and 4.5 out of 5 stars because I enjoyed it that much.

As you may know SDCC has arrived and debuted movie and television news for the past weekend. This is always the most exciting time of the year for me because there is so much news that arrives surrounding films that I’m eager to hear about. Well, yesterday Warner Bros. debuted a bunch of trailers to get us excited for their movies arriving either later this year or early next year and I’m here to share them with you all. Enjoy!
Godzilla: King of the Monsters
If you were at all bummed out by that eensy-weensy sneak peek of Godzilla: King of the Monsters that was revealed the other day well this official trailer was released yesterday and I have to say, it definitely looks decent. I watched Godzilla four years ago thinking it was going to be positively awesome and it was very disappointing indeed. I mean, it was absolutely horrendous, which was a bummer because I’ve always wanted to see a really good, modern Godzilla movie.
Well, this film definitely looks like it’ll be better than that movie as it clearly shows more monsters and plenty of jaw-dropping destruction that’ll look amazing in IMAX. I’m pretty sure the story will be sub par but the action will probably be worth the admission fee and that’s enough to make me want to see this movie.

It’s the first day of San Diego Comic-Con and that means news and teasers for your most anticipated movies and television shows will debut. Well, it looks like Godzilla: King of the Monsters has released a sneak peek of what to expect with this Godzilla sequel. Here it is.
While we don’t physically see Godzilla there is no doubt that this looks like it’ll be a slightly more frightening movie than its predecessor was. Hopefully the official teaser for the film will be just as riveting. 🙂
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.
When I went to watch Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom this past weekend one of the trailers that struck me before the film came on was this movie called Mortal Engines. As the trailer played I knew there was something awfully familiar about the cinematography and the overall fantasy vibe of the film. And then midway through the trailer it said that Peter Jackson was making this movie and I was like, “Whoa.” I haven’t heard anything about Peter Jackson since the end of The Hobbit trilogy and so to see this new film coming out this December with the legendary director at the helm is kind of amazing. Here’s the trailer.
This literally looks like The Hobbit except there’s a female lead, guns, and explosions. I’m pretty sure Mortal Engines was a novel before it was brought to the big screen because this looks just like a fantastic fantasy novel that I would want to read.
I’m a huge Peter Jackson fan (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy are some of the best movies ever made) and so I’m totally down for another film of his, especially one that looks this cool.
Wow, maybe there will be a very cool movie coming out this December after all. 🙂
I thank you for reading and I hope this excited you as much as it excited me. Have a wonderful day.
This is going to be a remarkably magical movie.
